Long weekends are sooooo much better than regular weekends, and when you take a vacation day to make it a four day weekend it’s basically the best thing ever. Here are some of the things I did on Friday and Saturday
grilled barbecue chicken + corn on the cob + spinach salad + beer = the perfect meal
Apples to Apples!
French Toast Kebabs!
Cut bread into 1″ squares, mix into your favorite french toast egg/milk mixture- ours had cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Using a slotted spoon, scoop squares into skillet or griddle pan and cook. It’s best to do them in small batches and keep them warm in the oven- just heat it to 200-250°F and put a rimmed baking pan in it to hold your squares. I also put our berries (straw, rasp and blue) in the oven after I’d washed and in the case of the strawberries cut them, so they’d be warm. Once your squares are all cooked, thread them onto skewers, alternating with the berries (or fruit of your choice). Serve with powdered sugar and maple syrup.
Thanks to Mimi, daughter of Design Mom, for the tutorial! I used to make these in middle school but I’d forgotten how, and her instructions were clear even to Sym, who is easily frustrated by new things.
Shopping for Raincoats & Fudge!

I also want to take a second to remind everyone who hasn’t yet to enter my awesome glitter garland giveaway. I was really worried no one would enter and I’d look dumb, so I’m very overwhelmed and grateful for the response! Thanks to everyone who has entered so far!
